Justin Timberlake makes a debut to remember in the music video for his new single, "Filthy". While we await the highly anticipated new album, Man of the Woods, fans have been given a 4-minute glimpse into the year 2028 in the futuristic new video. The dance-heavy, Mark Romanek-directed video depicts Justin at some type of technology conference in Asia in 2028, inciting a robot to perform actions of all kinds from the moonwalk to throwing a ball. Seemingly channelling Steve Jobs, Justin reveals his newest technological breakthrough to an eager audience.  While we are absolutely loving both the return of JT as well as the thought-provoking, innovative video, the content is definitely a far cry from how Justin's album was initially advertised.

In a teaser video, Justin explained how Man of the Woods was an ode to his roots in the South. "This album is really inspired by my son, wife, and family. But more so than any other album I've ever written, where I'm from. And it's personal," Justin shares. As themes of family and his Tennessee upbringing were emphasized, and bonfires, cornfields, and rivers were depicted initially, viewers and fans alike can't help but wonder how this cutting-edge and robotic film correlates with the wholesome, down-to-earth theme of the album. Now more than ever, we are anxious to see what his new album really entails. What we do know is that Justin has planned an eclectic new album, with no lack in diversity of sound. Luckily for us, we don't have to wait long to see how JT brings this album to life as he is set to perform at the 2018 Super Bowl Halftime Show on February 4th.

"Man of the Woods" debuts February 2nd. Watch the new video below.
